Beth Grimm iPhone and iPad/Tablet Artistry Class
Wednesday April 25 1-3:30 $40
Bring your phone or tablet/iPad and be amazed at how you can make beautiful art! When you come to class, please bring a fully charged iPhone with the following app downloaded: waterlogue
There will not be an opportunity to charge the phones during the class.
We will add other apps as classes progress but for the first class, this will suffice. Please don't plan to wait until class to download the app because I have a very busy schedule planned. There are 2 1/2 hours of class time and I will stay up to one hour after class to help anyone who wants additional help.
Please check the storage on your phone to make sure it is not full. Here's how: settings – general – iPhone storage. If most of your storage is used, it would be wise to remove some of the photos from your phone either by transfer to your computer or some other storage device (Google how to do this). You will need space on the phone to take a few photos and save your various iterations that you create with the iPhone editing options and the waterlogue program.
Please arrive on time if at all possible. We will take 10 minutes for short introductions and I would like to include you in this process. There will be people there you do not know. Then, I will dive right into the following progression:
Tips on settings and using the Iphone to take photos,
Tips on good photographic elements, including composition, lighting patterns, reflections and the like.
Step outside (if not raining-inside if raining) and choose a subject to photograph
Tips on seeing the subject from different angles, assessing best lighting, composing, and the like.
Go back into studio and work on the photographs.
Using the iphone editing first
Then going through the waterlogue options
Then back into iphone editing.
I expect you will leave with a great piece of art and a heart hungry for more creativity!
Here are some answers to questions that have been asked.
Can I bring my ipad?
Yes, this class focuses on the iPhone but iPads are fine. They aren’t as easy to photograph with but of course is easier to edit with. If you know how to airdrop, you can use your iphone to take a picture and the iPad for editing, but please understand I will not be taking time to help everybody with that nor providing electricity options for plugging in with such a large group.
What if I know nothing about art?
I guarantee that if you come to this class you will know a lot more than nothing when you leave. I will provide tip and cheat sheets for you to use during and after the class that will simplify things greatly. I have more than 40 years of training in photography and art. I will be able to reduce what I know to simple terms to help anyone learn or improve their photographic and arts skills using the iPhone. The greatest thing about learning to take good pictures and process them using the iPhone is that you always have it with you and therefore rarely miss a beautiful moment. For artists, you can have all of the tools you need for any form of art with you without loading up the back of your vehicle.
There is a 3 student minimum or the class is cancelled.
